The first Whitman community reunion was held Aug. 9, 2014, at Chief Logan State Park. The event brought together friends and neighbors that grew up in the area.
Hosts were Jack and Loretta Sperry, Darrell and Sherri Sperry and Gabe and Louise Huckeby Evans.
The rain did not dampen the spirits of those attending since some of them had not seen each other in 50 years. Needless to say, there were lots of hugs and reminiscing. Along with those still living in West Virginia, many traveled from other states, including Georgia, Florida, Indiana, California, North Carolina, Michigan and Ohio.
The second reunion is scheduled for Aug 8, 2015. For more info on that reunion, check the Whitman page on facebook.
